1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting Graffiti on: January 09, 2010 10:36:26 AM
Hi guys,

Just thought id share some knitting graffiti with you all...

KNIT THE CITY have been wrapping london in wholly goodness this year.  There are 7 members from all over london, who were all dragged into the Knit the city bunker and taught the way of the yarnstorm through gruelling tests and trials.  You can follow them on twitter (@knitthecity) and here is their site: 

Most of the yarn corps also have their own sites too:


Heres a few snapshots of pieces they've done:

Nothing at all to do with me Wink

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / help! - my pmc torch isnt working :( on: November 28, 2009 04:48:43 AM
Hi guys,

I bought a mini torch a few years back (2006) as part of a kit.  I used it a few times and it worked perfectly... however i went travelling and packed it all up.  I came back this year and ive tried to use it again. It ignited a few times - with perserverance and only had a small flame no matter how much gas i turned on.  Now ive come back to it after a few months and it wont ignite.  Huh Shocked

 Its full of gas and ive tried squirting a few drops of gas directly into the nozzle to try to clear anything that may be there.  Do i just have to bite the bullet and buy a new one?  I really hope i can salvage it!  Many thanks in advance.  x
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Henry my sock monster on: January 12, 2009 06:31:04 PM
Id like to intorduce you to Henry, my first sock monster!

I made him from a pair of socks (just one) from the dollar store (or even 100 yen store - here in Japan).  In fact all of the materials were from the yen store apart from the seqins on his toes and fingers.

i hope you like him, thanks for looking  Cheesy

6  ASIA / Japan / Craft group in Tokyo (East - Tsudanama) on: January 06, 2009 05:16:57 PM
Hi all,

Ive only just found this forum... and wanted to invite one and all to a stitch and bitch we have going in Tsudanama on  a friday night.  We meet around 7pm in the food court of JUSCO AEON near to the JR line of Tsudanama, but easily reached from the subway. 

We are a very friendly group of canadian, american, british, kiwi, malaysian and (unfortunately only sometimes) Japanese....

We would especially like to see more Japanese lasses there, but of course it is open to one and all.

We only started it about 3/4 months ago so its still fairly fresh.... if you dont knit, no probs, weve had jewellery makers and stamp carvers too, any craft is welcome, as long as its portable!!

cheers  Grin
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Needle book - my first posting!! on: January 04, 2009 03:25:42 AM
Hi guys, im quite new to Craftster, and ive finally bitten the bullet and decided to post a finished object up here... i hope you like it!

Ive made it for my stitch and bitch group here in Tokyo, as we are having a (late - due to many people returning home for the holidays) secret santa.

I made the stamps i used for the back (my initials) and the heart, star and cupcake from erasers cut with a craft knife... (a japanese friend told me about this craft - very cool, and easy to try!).... The pearl bead is used as a button with plaited embroidery thread as a hook to keep the book closed.

Thanks for looking Smiley
